Life Book 2016 - Week 6
The Week 6 project was to create a piece with 'quirky' birds perched on a tree branch. I wanted to complete a piece in a day and decided the tree was going to take too long. So, I made a single quirky bird.
Part of the assignment was to also explore using a wet-on-wet watercolor technique. I really liked it!
Anyway, my quirky gal is dressed in bumblebee camouflage wearing a tutu and loves platform shoes.
I like how the stamping reinforces a decorative element. The empty space beforehand was distracting Down the road, I may change the background color/treatment further, since it is quite plain.
This piece was created through a class offered by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts Ltd. For more information, visit this link: www.willowing.org.
